I love this size of Arm & Hammer Baking soda. It is very practical for the many uses around the house. The bag has a handle that makes is easy to carry. Laundry: In addition to laundry detergent, I add 1/4 to 1/2 cup to loads of laundry that I want extra fresh. Baking Soda also naturally helps to whiten loads of whites. Dishes: In addition to the dishwasher detergent, I add 2 tablespoons of baking soda to each load that I run in the dishwasher; it helps to soften the water and dishes come out sparkling and the dishwasher is fresh. Scrubbing: We use baking soda to safely and gently scrub out showers and sinks. No harsh chemical odors or vapors and no scratching to damage surfaces. Baking soda also cleans stainless steel sinks and surfaces well. Carpet: I sprinkle it on carpet stains or dirty carpet and let it sit overnight. The next day, I vacuum, and the carpet is clean and fresh. Body: We brush our teeth with baking soda and use it to gently rough exfoliate skin as needed. We love this baking soda, and there are countless more "green" ways to use it around the house.
